No, something has gone wrong.

For http access to work, you need to run git update-server-info on the
server to rewrite the refs. We did have a call to git-update-server-info
in hooks/post-update (notice the git-), but the legacy
git-update-server-info symlink is no longer present on the server,
causing it to fail.

Interesting, /usr/bin was updated just around that time, so it is
probably caused by a git upgrade that I wasn't informed about:

drwxr-xr-x   2 root   root     36K Oct  4 22:54 .

I've fixed it now, so hopefully it should work in the future. If not,
let me know.

Bye, Peter Korsgaard
